Dress or coat? Loafers or boots? What do little boys and girls wear in the summer or in the winter? The children decide for themselves as they thread according to the patterns provided or in free play, because the 36 different hairstyle and clothing tiles generate countless creative combinations. Ideal for developing eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills. The double sided board features a child waiting to be dressed, with a summer theme on one side and winter theme on the other. Designed for ages 3 and up, there are three tear-resistant, double-sided template cards showing outfits with different degrees of difficulty including how to thread them. Threading toys teach fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination while also fostering imagination, creativity, and planning. Add in the calming effect of "sewing" and you have a toy children will gravitate to time and time again.
